  • - Christ.

  • (swooshing)

  • (squeaky hinges)

  • (rock music)

  • - This is considered the traditional staple

  • for most people most mornings.

  • (laughs)

  • We have the fried bread, English bacon,

  • which is English back bacon.

  • It's obviously a different taste to the American bacon.

  • The pork sausage, which we have

  • made with our British butcher.

  • Um, Heinz baked beans, which are imported,

  • um, baked beans from England.

  • Fried tomatoes, grilled tomatoes here.

  • Then, underneath, we've got fried mushrooms.

  • The black pudding, which is also known as blood pudding.

  • Where I'm from, the West Midlands,

  • it's known as a delicacy.

  • - Ooh.

  • I think American bacon is better.

  • It's greasier, I mean if you're going to get

  • something unhealthy, just, like, go all the way, you know?

  • - This is really good, it's really hearty, but...

  • I think ours is just a little bit better.

  • - This looks more like a hotdog.

  • - Mmmm.

  • - What my tastebuds are telling me

  • is that this is deep fried in butter,

  • and, um, it's fantastic.

  • - Mmm, oh my God.

  • - Who makes better toast?

  • England.

  • - I feel like it's so random to have

  • just a plain tomato for breakfast.

  • - While I'm not a big fan of tomatoes,

  • I can appreciate a tomato, and this is

  • a really, really good one.

  • - Mushrooms, they're ok.

  • I feel like these belong in an omelette.

  • On their own, uh, they seem lonely.

  • - [Woman] Are beans a vegetable?

  • - Also, beans...

  • Not a breakfast food in America.

  • - You know what, if I could have

  • the sauce of the beans, that's good.

  • - English breakfast is basically like a barbeque.

  • - Black pudding is made of blood?

  • Lovely.

  • - It kind of looks like, uh...

  • corned beef hash.

  • - It's got, like, little nuggets in there.

  • I don't know what those are.

  • - I'm not a big fan of it on its own.

  • - Pudding is chocolate,

  • and dessert and sweet.

  • You told me I'm going to have black pudding!

  • - Listen, I mean this has been

  • a very interesting experience,

  • but, to be honest, I still think that

  • the American breakfast is the strong one.

  • - English breakfast is better than

  • American breakfast, I'm sorry.

  • - This or Cinnamon Toast Crunch?

  • I think this wins.

  • - Gotta give it to America,

  • cause, America, you can have dessert for breakfast,

  • you can have, you know, like you can have

  • something sweet, you can have something savory.

  • This just feels like dinner.

  • So it's a tie?

  • I think we might have just started

  • a second Revolutionary War.

  • (rock music)

  • (swooshing)

  • (squeaky hinges)

- Christ.
